    I felt like I was at a 3 star hotel/conference center. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a hostel. If you’re traveling with friends a shared room here would be a much better deal than doubling up beds and sharing a motel room. (4 twins, separated storage.)

    Fantastic hostel. Our double bed en-suite was literally like a hotel room :) the duty manager Andrea was an absolute delight. The room was mostly clean - only some mould around the shower head which is better than most hostels! Great location, fantastic value for money - highly recommend as this is easily the best place I’ve stayed at.

    Lovely hostel and great staff. We stayed in a stunning private room for only £35 a night. Will definitely be staying again. Also a good location. The only negatives were my towels smelled a bit funny and the lift was broken.

    Great shared areas. We booked a double with bunk beds for our family of 2 adults 2 kids. We were told on arrival that only bunk bed rooms were available. We were compensated with free cooked breakfast each day of our stay. The bed's however were uncomfortable for our age/build we are both almost 6 ft tall and found the bed's unsupportive of our backs. The rest of the stay was positive, very friendly staff, good food, clean etc. The room could have done with another chair, only 1 provided

    Facilities were really good - clean and high quality. Breakfast was cheap, convenient and had a wide range of options. Location left something to be desired as it is over 30 mins to walk from the coach station at Sofia Gardens to the YHA and it is also a not insignificant walk to the city centre.
